Here we present the average clock speed for each graphics card while running the 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra stress test 20 times. We use GPU-Z to record the GPU core frequency during the Fire Strike Ultra runs. We calculate the average core frequency during the entire 20-run test to present here.
This is the first example where we tested both on-board BIOS – OC and Silent. The OC BIOS averaged 1936MHz under load, meaning it runs about 115MHz faster than reference. The Silent BIOS, however, has a lower power target of just 180W and accordingly drops clock speed below the reference card, averaging 1786MHz.
